Previously and introduction
Ellen here, and you are reading my blog, probably because you liked the first one or you are very curious about my life, or you are checking if you find your name in this blog. I will try to make the best out of my English grammar, it is not my mother tongue so if it is not perfect I am sorry!!
Anyway, a short previously “in Ellens Life”
I went back to the Netherlands at the 14th of January. The plan was to return to Iceland at the 14th of February. No I didn’t book my ticket back, because you never know what might happen…..One month of Netherlands was one month full of quality time with family and my best friend. Of course a month is still to short so I didn’t manage to see all the people I wanted to see. But Yes I had a good time, enjoyed a lot. Annet my younger sister got married. Of course I think she was the most beautiful bride I ever saw, and my brother in law is just the perfect guy for her! In this month I became a alcoholic because everywhere I went and everywhere I came there was W I N E. Enjoying the good life in Netherlands. Good food, good wine, all the things I wanted to but where so cheap!!! Having nice people around me, I felt good. Of course the first week was strange and the last days you want to go…back to your other home
But something happen…..lots of you still don’t know the end of ‘mr big’…Well let me introduce him…His name is Tomos and there is no real ending. After Iceland we were still in contact, lost it a bit (but that was good, I needed the internet distance) but then…In January he let me knew he was in Amsterdam. Yess the most craziest city of the world. Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n Roll. Well you can imagine that this lifestyle suited him. The question was….should we meet or not??? Finally we did. I went all the way to Amsterdam (yes in Netherlands the distance between my mother’s town and Amsterdam is big!) We saw each other 4 whole hours and after…I went back and he went back home to Wales. When we would see again? Of course we didn’t talk about it….but….2 days later I booked my ticket to Wales. I was leaving Netherlands 4 days earlier then planned and would stay this days with Tomos.
Like I said before, don’t plan….I stayed one week in Wales. The weather was very bad, but I finally had a holiday feeling. Finally I could relax, a week with Tomos was very nice and Wales is beautiful. We walked a lot, talked a lot, I slept a lot, we drink wine, watched movies. If I look back…maybe we could make more out of this week, but both our heads were planning other things. Anyway….it was a great time……..
Yes yes I hear some of you screaming. No, me and Tomos we are not a couple, we are friends and we will see what the future will bring us. Yess Friends…..let’s say….special friends. I left with a smile, because for me…it was not a goodbye, it was ‘I will see you again’ Tomos is now in Korea, he wanted to go there so badly he will stay there 3 or 6 month so from now..today….our contact will probably get less, but if that is the way it is…then it is the way it is
Then….Finally the most important part of this story…’the present’’
Okay let me introduce you my house CASA DEL BITCHES/ MEANGIRLS/ RED LIGHT DISTRICT or whatever we didn’t decided yet about the name.
I am living downtown Reykjavik and share my little castle with
Pablo (next to me on the picture) I met Pablo at Riff and after a while we became good friends. Pablo is quiet, introvert but very funny and nice. At this moment he is totally in love with Pawel.
Jésus (in the middle, pronouns as gesouse) Jésus is one of the best friends of Pablo and that is how we met. Jésus is like a flower….seems to be innocent, is very funny, a bit naïf and clumpsy. Looking for love, kissing and hugging.
Then last Julio ( on the right, is Mexican, speaks very fast Spanish) he is the most wise of us, because he is living here a long long time, he is also a real PARTYanimal. You can party with him but also just sit down and chat with him. Not looking for love ( he found it), sex is enough (for now)
Me, Ellen. Not gay, not Spanish, or Spanish speaking and the only REAL female in the house. At the moment I am working in a hotel as a housekeeper looking for something more fun! Not looking for love, just go with the flow……
Today it is 24th March and that means that I am almost 5 weeks living here in this crazy amazing, wonderful loving house.
Soon….I will tell you all…..
